A decent game that has been very biased.

The Good
Of all of the bias I've seen put on video games, this is one of the worst cases. 90% of all critics who reviewed this game hated it because "it isn't what a Scooby-Doo game should be based around whaaaaaaa!". Yeah. Well, here is a completely unbiased review, since I never really liked Scooby-Doo anyway.

The story is that of a Scooby Doo cartoon: a ghost has appeared in town and you meddling kids and your dog must stop it from causing mayhem. Very basic. Very bland. But there are 4 "episodes". So... 4 times the basic-ness and blandness.

The gameplay is actually fun. It is a beat-em-up game, not an adventure. You can cry yourself to sleep now. Anyway, you play as two of the Mystery Inc. members and beat the crap out of enemies and collect Scooby-Snacks. You can use the Scooby-Snacks to buy costumes that I have yet to use (I haven't finished the game). You can also get trophies and monster masks (which are freakin' easy to guess who it belongs to).

The music wasn't really memorable. However, I did like the first bosses' first theme.

The graphics are bright and colorful. I don't like the models of the main characters, but everything else looks fine. The frame-rate is decent. It's actually better than most PS2 games I think.

The voice acting is the same as the original cartoon. Whether this is good or bad all depends on who you are. If you loved the show, this is good. If you were like me and never really watched the show, then the voices could get a little annoying.

The Bad
I am terrible with the long range attackers, so I don't like them. They shoot kind of awkwardly to me. Also, when I just want fool around with enemies, doing things such as making them fall in the abyss, the partners can get in the way of you and fun. These are the only real complaints I have.

The Bottom Line
Overall, this game is better than some critics make it out to be. If you like Scooby-Doo, beat-em-ups, or both, go right ahead and buy it.
